The NBA trade rumors are buzzing again with more than two weeks to go before the 2016-2017 season begins. Among the teams that are reportedly looking to upgrade their rosters are the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, according to the latest news.

It's not surprising that the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics would be included in NBA trade rumors considering that the two teams, with the most combined championships in the history of the league, are in rebuilding mode.

For its part, the Los Angeles Lakers are banking on the talents of its young core of D'Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Brandon Ingram and Larry Nance Jr. to bring the team back to contention. The Boston Celtics, meanwhile, are looking at Isaiah Thomas, Al Horford, Marcus Smart and Gerald Green to challenge the Eastern powerhouse, Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now, the Los Angeles Lakers forward Nick Young has been named in the NBA trade rumors, while the Cleveland Cavaliers are supposedly looking to deal J.R. Smith with the Boston Celtics. The sweet-shooting Nick Young has been the odd-man-out in the rotation of the Lakers last year, but the 6-7 forward is looking to regain his shooting touch under coach Luke Walton.

Nick Young, along with Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph, Brandon Knight, Ricky Rubio, Greg Monroe and Nerlens Noel as among the players on the chopping block before the trade deadline, the latest news from FoxSports claimed.

Watch out for more NBA trade trumors, as well as the latest news on the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, which will be published here when they come along.
